a haven in a storm

After driving through an intense rainfall that lasted more than an hour as I drove to Asheville, NC and found a haven in the storm upon arrival. Not only was i welcomed warmly, I was provided a lovely new room on the ground floor and excellent assistance to get to my dinner reservation in Asheville. Bravo!!

Perfect Stay

This motel is located close to many of the sites in the area. Also easy to find and close to many restaurants. The staff maintains a great facility and are very friendly. Lots of breakfast choices.

Very convenient and good value

My partner and I were very grateful that hotel staff allowed us to check in early (we arrived at 11 a.m. local time) instead of waiting until the normal 3 p.m. check-in. Thank you. The bed, pillows, lighting, and other aspects of the room was superb. Hotel location was very convenient for travel downtown Asheville and touring the Biltmore Estate. Plenty of restaurants and the Mall were close, as well. I strongly recommend the Asian Bistro Restaurant at the Mall; superb Asian cuisine. Two problems, however. (a) The hotel's one computer located in the lobby was very, very slow and needed maintenance. I informed desk staff and that was done within 24 hours. But regular (monthly) computer maintenance is advised. (b) The room water tap (sink) was difficult to manage, and it was impossible to regulate hot and cold water. Also, there was no designation which direction was "hot" and which was "cold." The sink plumbing needs attention. Other than that, the hotel was excellent and good value. Thank you. Mark Anshel

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

I drove to The Asian Bistro located at the Asheville Mall and for many people will require car travel, but is only a 15 min. walk. Also liked that several restaurants were within a 15 min. walk, as well, such as Chili's, Int'l House of Pancakes, and others. Also, the hotel had a superb in-house breakfast buffet. Thank you.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Biltmore. Went to a wedding at the Biltmore. This motel was a short drive...and a lot cheaper than the Inn at the Biltomore. The Inn is deluxe and should be visited...lobby is beautiful etc...but pricey,...Stay at Days Inn and then visit Biltmore..and its grounds.

Affordable weekend getaway

Booked this hotel for a last-minute weekend trip with my partner to visit several local craft breweries. We're on a fairly tight budget but wanted to stay downtown, so we opted for Days Inn expecting the usual "budget hotel" experience. Wrong! The hotel was well-maintained for the most part, stellar proximity to downtown, friendly staff, and a great value. Although the bathroom was fairly outdated and tiny, the extraordinary comfort of the bed, pillows, etc. more than made up for the bathroom's shortcomings. Definitely a great place for those looking to stay within easy driving distance from downtown and on a budget!

Amazing experience

We thought to be only one night, but we stayed 3 nights, the hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and the location is close to everywhere. Asheville is amazing.

Needs serious attention

Traveled w/ a friend to visit Asheville as a possible re-location spot. Reserved a room at the Days Inn based on the cost of the room and location and it had a 3.2 rating. The pool was clean and sparkled. The breakfast was excellent and offered a nice variety of traditional breakfast items, especially the fact that fresh eggs were scrambled up and served as opposed to reconstituted eggs. Sadly, this is where the 3 rating ends. The room has a different story. The linens were clean, bed and bath, and I give them that. The renovation done to the room, however many years ago, was falling apart. The wall paper in the bathroom was peeling off and sagging due to water damage; the light grill over the vanity was rusting; the light switch did not work properly and came on unexpectedly; the sink faucet did not shut off completely; the laminate flooring was splitting at seams and curling up; the tub appeared to have been repainted 2 or 3 times and was peeling. It looked awful; There was mold growing on the tile grout in the tub surround; the mattresses were...I can't hardly explain...about as cheap as you can get. So few inner-springs that when you sat down/lied down it felt like it was a water bed; and lastly the room was musty smelling due to water/ventilation issues. This was not a 3.2 rating. The best I can give it is a rating of 1.5.

Worst hotel ever!

The nightmare began at check in. The clerk never smiled, thanked us, or told us there was a hot breakfast included. The rooms are not carpeted, and there are no rugs on the floor, either. The paint was coming off the walls, and the grout in the bathrooms was molded. At 2:30 a.m. I called the front desk to report loud talking and drinking at the pool (which was directly in front of us) and was told, "That's the owner." I answered, "I paid $100 to sleep tonight." To which the clerk replied, "I don't know what to say. We can maybe give you a discount tomorrow or something." I had prepaid for the room, and a discount was not helping me sleep at 2:30 in the morning. I was dumbfounded! And to top it off, the hairdryer in the room did not work!! Worst hotel experience I ever had! DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL!!!!! I would give it NEGATIVE STARS if I could!!!!!
